I will preface this post with saying that my husband is a work from home/stay at home dad.
Yesterday while at work, I find out via a Facebook notification that my teenage daughter and two friends have walked to Wal-Mart to get hair dye and are in the process of dyeing each others hair. My daughter and one of the friends chose to use a dye that included a bleach process first. I come home to two girls with what I would call “zebra hair”. NEVER allow 15 year olds to dye each others hair.
This fiasco was was followed by one in tears, another in trouble with her mom and a very regretful dad. There is a reason that moms typically stay at home and not dads.
- Dad – don’t allow girls to do extreme things to their hair, body, etc. without mom there.
- Daughter – don’t ever dye my hair at home unless my mom does it.
- Me – school just let out. This is going to be a loooong summer.
